Equality impact assessment in relation to the significant change application

 

 

As a Gold UNICEF Rights Respecting School, the staff and students are aware of the protected characteristics and their duty to ensure that no-one in the Will Adams family is disadvantaged

 

We protect the characteristics of key groups through:

Fostering good relations across all characteristics - between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it. We foster good relations by:

Ensuring that every provision is seen as a community school within their local community

Ensuring that equality and diversity are embedded in the curriculum and in collective worship

 

The following characteristics are also considered:

Students eligible for Free School Meals (FSM)

Students with Special Educational Needs (SEN)

Students with English as an Additional Language (EAL)

Students with a Traveller heritage who are highly mobile but not from a minority ethnic group, such as Fair or Circus families
